New York City artist Jeremy Penn paints French Actress Brigitte Bardot in his signature pop art style.

Bardot has always captured my imagination, as well as my aesthetic appreciation. In our modern era, a woman in charge of her own sexuality is nothing new. We’ve seen it all before, with iconic female figures in the spotlight, from the striking, seductive androgyny of Grace Jones to the aggressive self-assertion of Madonna. Yet rewind 60 years, and the world, at least for females, was a very different place. In the post-war years, women were encouraged to be demure, lady-like, refined, and ultimately, non-sexual. Women who celebrated their sexuality were frowned upon, regarded as somehow debased and ‘unnatural’.
